IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
WESTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
FORT SMITH DIVISION
CHANDRA LYONS J. JACKSON
Case No. 2:12-CV-02305
JANET MATLOCK, Chuck Fawcett Realty; and
DISTRICT COURT JUDGE BEN BELAND
Currently before the Court is Plaintiff Chandra J. Jackson’s motion (Doc. 6) for
reconsideration. On February 12, 2013, the Court entered an Order (Doc. 5) adopting the Report and
Recommendations (Doc. 3) filed by the Honorable James R. Marschewski, Chief United States
Magistrate Judge for the Western District of Arkansas, on December 6, 2012. The Order dismissed
Plaintiff’s complaint without prejudice for lack of jurisdiction. For the reasons stated below,
Plaintiff’s Motion for Reconsideration of this Order is DENIED.
Under Rule 60(b), a party may be relieved from an order of the Court under certain
enumerated circumstances, including the existence of “mistake, inadvertence, surprise, or excusable
neglect” or “any other reason that justifies relief.” Fed. R. Civ. P. 60(b)(1) and (6). Rule 60(b)
“provides for extraordinary relief which may be granted only upon an adequate showing of
exceptional circumstances.” United States v. Young, 806 F.2d 805, 806 (8th Cir. 1986). None of
the circumstances envisioned by Rule 60(b) for finding that reconsideration may be warranted are
present in this case, and relief is not otherwise justified. Plaintiff does not even address the Court’s
finding that it lacked jurisdiction to address her claims.
For the reasons set forth above, IT IS ORDERED that Plaintiff’s Motion for
Reconsideration (Doc. 6) is DENIED.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 16th day of September, 2013.
